The electrical generation sector is facing a future of disruptive changes with the implementation of more renewable energy, a higher demand of electricity due to more electric transport and newly developed storage technology. Power plant digitalization In this context, conventional power plants (mainly nuclear and combined cycle plants) are still a necessity, but under different […]
Our world is changing at an unprecedented speed, involving challenges such as the population growth, the environmental degradation and the economic recession. As society becomes more reliant on technology, the progressive electrification and decarbonization of economy will intensify leading to a more complex electricical system. The future technologies will need vast quantities of electricity and […]
The digital twin is a virtual replica of an asset or process that, by combining design information, process data and simulation capabilities, <strong>allows us to optimize the operation</strong> throughout its life. <h2><strong>What steps must be followed to build a digital twin?</strong></h2> Physical processes or assets that can undertake this journey to intelligence are very diverse […]
The electric generation sector is currently faced with the need to reduce operating costs without affecting plant safety and availability. There are digital solutions that are helping with that. Amongst those solutions, there is growing interest in the sector for computerized procedures systems that can be executed and monitored through tablets and computers and which […]
Do the results of the project justify the investment? This is a key question before addressing any project or investment, the development of a business case in which a detailed definition and understanding of the costs and benefits associated with the project is made, helps us to find the answer.
Today’s society is immersed in the so-called digital transformation, which, since a few years ago, is changing the rules of the game in all areas.
All existing systems, components and structures in an energy or industrial installation, depending on their design, construction and environmental and operating conditions, are affected, by some form of degradation and aging thus varying its operational life.
The information that is displayed in current control rooms from a great variety of industries, in monitoring centers, and in results reporting is representative of a «classic» form – based on digital indicators and trend graphs.
Monitoring systems are becoming part of the digital transformation which is currently taking place in the industry. The monitoring of any process consists of gathering information with the objective of detecting possible anomalies or malfunctions. Current technology allows monitoring systems to observe the main magnitudes of any process, remotely and online, using communications. The monitoring […]
Data can provide great value to maximize the efficiency of industrial systems, thanks to the technological revolution centred on the information management and automatic analysis.
Tecnatom is continuing to consolidate its control rooms activities in the ambitious Chinese nuclear program.
Tecnatom has inaugurated its new monitoring centre to provide monitoring and diagnostic services aimed at optimising the operation and maintenance of our client’s power plants.
Tecnatom has developed a new automatic system to carry out internal inspections on tanks without having to drain them. The new RITA system has already been tested in the Vandellós nuclear power station to inspect the JET01A fuel-oil tank
